Hi all, have been left this camera and it looks in really good condition however when looking through the viewfinder I see specs of dust and a couple of black hairs ? This morning I tried to fire the camera but it failed to do so ? When removing the lens I note the firing lever inside is at its maximum point but it still doesn’t fire? the the rewind now has resistance ( I haven’t forced this just noted the resistance ) I have been on to you tube to see how to possibly resolve the issue(s), and although I am fairly practical, I don’t think I am capable of a full strip down and rebuild, besides many don’t show how to put it together again lol ... Are there any basic videos or guides You could point me to that may help me be able to resolve the issues described ?

regards Paúl

Thanks for info, I have already seen this, and although showing how to take the assembly apart, it doesn’t actually shows the cleaning of it only that it’s very fragile and easily marked ...but thanks anyway kind regards Paúl
